This intriguing picture from Islamabad advertises a “Child Friendly School”?

Leaves one wondering about exactly what a “child friendly school” is? Maybe our readers can tell us what that would mean in Pakistan.

By implication, it suggests that other schools are not “child friendly.” That may well be so. After all, we have written before about schools that had 25 teachers and only 52 students!

In fairness, this seems to be the name of the school itself. In which case this may be a case of Pinglish. If that is so, one would have to wonder whether the school is “education friendly,” irrespective of whether it is “child friendly” or not.
